Hello there.
I have a 2012 retina display macbook pro. Distortions started to occur on the screen during transitions.
Battery cycle is 1345.
Could the problem of the screen have something to do with the battery?



Do you think I should do this or should I contact the authorized apple service?

Probably not. Display distortions on MacBooks generally mean the logic board is in need of repair. You can contact the place you mentioned of you can contact Apple authorized, however with Apple that device is considered a Vintage/Obsolete device and they won't guarantee they even have the parts to repair it.

Thanks for interest CParsons.

I heard about Logic Board for the first time. If Apple does not guarantee spare parts available, it makes more sense to take it to the local service center.

The screen issue has existed since the battery started to fail. So that was the first thing that came to my mind.



Actually, that's exactly the problem.
Let's say right now Chrome is open and I'm surfing. When I want to switch to the other desktop window on the right or left with 3 finger movements, the image of the old window looks like 50% opacity while the screen is moving.
